My pastoral counseling work is grounded in my Zen Buddhist practice. My meditation practice supports a present-moment relationship with each client, creating space for us to explore the landscape of experience together. I practice contemplative psychotherapy, using mindfulness techniques to help clients access their own wisdom. Reflecting on this wisdom together can lead to making choices and taking actions that better reflect clients’ values and the way they would like to be in the world.

I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.

Do you carry memories heavy with emotion? Does just thinking about an event make you feel the same emotions now as you did back then?. Or maybe you have a severe phobia that interferes with you living your best life, or a recent traumatic incident has rocked your world. Sometimes it feels like the world is out of control. This can be especially true for people going through life transitions. I can help.

I offer a non-judgmental, practical approach to therapy, focused on your personal growth. Life is about transition and change is inevitable. Despite people's desire to adjust and grow, they often find themselves stuck, fighting resistance to change. Clients who find themselves repeating the same patterns of experience and facing the same challenges in their thoughts and relationships can often find hope and help through the process of therapy. My interactive and interpersonal approach can help break through the conflict with yourself so that you can participate more fully in life and discover the possibilities within you.

I am a psychotherapist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois.  I provide individual, couples and family therapy.  Often, people are daunted by the possibility of changing feelings, behaviors, and patterns that may have long histories, or that have resisted previous efforts. I firmly believe therapy offers solid reasons to have hope. Undoubtedly, therapy offers the opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge and acceptance of oneself as well as insight into how one's fears, unacknowledged desires, and conflicts from the past can influence current behavior.

Accepting new clients! I believe change occurs in the context of our relationships, with our own self and with others. Oftentimes, when people seek out therapy, they are feeling lost, discarded, and may be filled with self-doubt and negative thoughts and feelings about themselves in the world. I work with clients to forge new ways of relating to ourselves and others to engage more fully in the world. We do this by learning a range of new skills and processing past experiences, but at its core, it is about connection with another human being and being seen, heard, understood, respected, and known.

To me, therapy is about seeking wholeness; it is a journey of more fully integrating our minds, bodies, & souls. Many of us live trapped in patterns & scripts that weigh us down & that keep us from living full, authentic lives. As a trauma-informed therapist (& former spiritual director), I take into consideration the whole person, noting that past or ongoing traumas, wounds, & injustices shape the way we understand and engage with ourselves and the world. I help clients draw connections between formative past experiences & current ones in order to identify & shift those relational patterns & ongoing struggles.

Emotions & feelings are a gift; they are the natural barometer for navigating our lives. Often we fear or misinterpret those emotions & fall into a holding pattern as to how to move forward.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Illinois, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Illinois listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
